It’s been proven that many companies that manufactured asbestos-containing products knew early on that asbestos exposure was harming and killing their workers — but did nothing to warn or protect them. “Failure to warn” now forms the basis of most asbestos litigation.
Asbestos lawsuits cost you nothing — we only receive our fee if we win the case on your behalf, awarding you the compensation you need and deserve.
What to expect when you file a lung cancer lawsuit
The process of filing asbestos lawsuits is straightforward.
- After you contact us and the determination has been made that you might have a valid claim, your asbestos lung cancer attorneys will work with you to gather the details of your case. The next step is filing a complaint and prosecuting your case.
- Most often cases are resolved prior to going to trial, but if such a settlement cannot be reached, your case will be moved into the trial phase. In a trial, both sides will have an opportunity to present their cases, and a jury will decide on the outcome.
- It’s important for victims to act quickly, because different states have different time limits on when claims may be filed.
This process is based on a contingency fee — meaning there’s no up front cost for you. You’ll only pay our fee if we win a case on your behalf.
What kind of settlement can you expect from a lung cancer lawsuit?
